This should be "by the seller", if it wasn't obvious.
I can't run Halo 4 on my modern desktop because a lawyer prevents the devs from making it.
Nor can people run Bob's Game on a Nintendo handheld because a lawyer prevented Robert Pelloni from buying a devkit to port it. Indie games are far more likely to be PC exclusives simply because the developer cannot buy a console devkit.
Of course, don't let your company health care provider hear that you have a fridge of 240-calorie insulin-bombs stalking the corridor...
Then mention in passing to the insurer that Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite Zero, Diet Mtn Dew, Pepsi Max, and Dr Pepper Ten aren't exactly "insulin bombs".
Some PC games have DRM, but then again some console games (such as one of the Spyro games for PS1) have additional copy protection above and beyond the console's proprietary disc format. But the vast majority of PC games on GOG or Humble Bundle are DRM-free, as are open-source games downloaded from the developer's own web site.
Or were you referring to Secure Boot in Windows 8 (x86 and x86-64)? You can turn that off.
I personally thought "Xbox Live" would have been a great name, but they've been ditching the Live branding, so I knew that wouldn't happen either.
If Microsoft is ditching the "Xbox Live" branding, then what's the new name for the additional recurring fee payable to Microsoft to access the Netflix VOD subscription that you're already paying for?
AMD doesn't make Hyperthreaded CPUs
Bulldozer is SMT with each of two threads given its own integer pipe.
I am a bit hesitant to guess between Brazos versus Jaguar, GCN versus VILW-4
That's strange: There was already a console called the "Jaguar" (made by Atari), one called the "GCN" (abbreviation for GameCube, made by Nintendo), and one called the "Xbox 1" (the original Xbox, made by Microsoft, gained this name after the 360 came out).
This is hardly like the consoles of old, this is supposed to essentially replace a PC.
Will it have indie games like the PC has? I didn't see anything in the Wired article about an Xbox One counterpart to XNA.
Saved games in the cloud instead of locally saved?
According to the Wired article, that'll depend on the game. It claims that "you can still play a single-player game without being connected to the Internet," but not all games will allow this: "developers are able to offload significant chunks of processing power to the cloud—conceivably even fundamental game mechanics like physics engines or collision-detection systems."
But other possibilities also come to mind. If developers are able to offload significant chunks of processing power to the cloud—conceivably even fundamental game mechanics like physics engines or collision-detection systems
If the game mechanics run remotely, then it's essentially a glorified OnLive and will require always-on wired broadband. I thought people bought consoles in part because they live outside the service area of cable and fiber or just to have something to do during an Internet outage. Yet something later in the article contradicts that:
(Don’t worry; you can still play a single-player game without being connected to the Internet.)
